Specific Heat of Rhenium (Re) + Sources, Uses, Origin ... 2022

Specific heat is an important physical property for materials and atomic elements like Rhenium. Ok, so what is the specific heat of an atom of Re?

Note: Learn more about theĀ specific heat here.

In the case of RheniumĀ the specific heat isĀ 0.13 J/gK.Ā Well... speaking of him, there are cool facts about Rhenium that most people don't know about. Let me show you...

Rhenium Data

Rhenium Specific Heat

0.13 J/gK


Found in small amounts in gadolinite and molybdenite. Has a very high melting point.


Mixed with tungsten or platinum to make filaments for mass spectrographs. Its main value is as a trace alloying agent for hardening metal components that are subjected to continuous frictional forces.

Name Origin

Latin: Rhenus, the Rhine River.

State at 20 Ā°C



Rare and costly, dense, silvery-white metal.

Are you having trouble understanding the basics of atomic elements? This video will walk you through:
  • What is an element
  • What is a substance
  • What Elements look like
  • How a small number of atoms can be joined and form completely different substances


When you need to include a fact or piece of information in an assignment or essay you should also include where and how you found that piece of information.

That gives credibility to your paper and it is sometimes required in higher education.

To make your life (and citation) easier just copy & paste the information below into your assignment or essay:

Luz, Gelson. "Specific Heat of Rhenium (Re) + Sources, Uses, Origin ..." Materials. Gelsonluz.com. dd mmmm. yyyy. <URL>

Now replace dd, mmmm and yyyy with the day, month, and year you browsed this page. Also replace URL for the actual url of this page (The < and > stay, ok?). This citation format is based on MLA.
